Course Description

Located within Lake Thunderbird State Park, the course consists of single track trails that are flat and fast for a nice easy run in the woods. PRs for trail runs are very possible!

The course is a 12.5k loop with longer distances running multiples of this loop. Clear Bay aid station is hit at mile 2.1 and again at 5.6. Breakwater bay/Calypso Cove aid station is at 3.9 miles. Drop bags can be placed at both aid stations. They will be taken at the start of the race and brought back at the conclusion. If you need it before then you may drive to the aid station and pick it up.

Virtual Run

Unable to attend and still want to participate? Virtual options do exist that allow runners to obtain a coveted medal or complete the series even if they are unable to attend an event in person. We realize that other life obligations come up.
